I just installed the MathJax Extension for Wordpress because I did not really like the way the math were rendered with the [latex] tags provided with the JetPack.

If I use the classic $$, the blog renders the equation using MathJax. However, if I keep using [latex] the JetPack function seems to be used, and I can't find a way to only remove this feature from the jetpack?

Is there any known issue in having the two methods at the same time?

Is there a way to remove only this feature from the jetpack?

Remove Jetpack’s shortcode handler:

remove_shortcode( 'latex', 'latex_shortcode' );

I don’t know when exactly the shortcode is registered, you have to find the best execution point (action) to remove it.
